I am fairly new to TokuDB but so far I am impressed with the compression it provides to the data stored within. One of my clients has a ton of data that is constantly growing and thus TokuDB made a lot of sense for the solution that was created. While becoming more familiar with TokuDB and trying different cloud solutions I ran into a minor issue installing TokuDB on a Google Cloud VM instance but explain how to resolve easily below.
I use TextMate on Mac OSX Mountain Lion to write notes. One thing I find myself needing a bunch is to insert the current date and time so I can track specific events. For instance if I am writing an article for Question-Defense.com and I am doing the initial formatting in TextMate, which is a typical scenario for me, I might take ten screenshots and I like to note the current date/time in case I get pulled away from the article writing for something else. So having a keyboard shortcut that outputs the current date/time is really valuable so I don’t have to type it out by hand. Below I describe how to install a OSX Service that will provide various date/time outputs via Keyboard Shortcuts. The OSX Service called WordService also provides a bunch of extra awesome services which I briefly touch on below as well.
Earlier when attempting to login to a DD-WRT router at my house I was unable to so I figured when I upgraded the software last night that is must have disabled SSH Management for some reason. I went into the web interface to turn SSH Management on but it was greyed out. Luckily the fix is easy but wanted to note it in an article in case others couldn’t find the location to turn SSH on in DDWRT.
When I booted my Dell Studio XPS laptop yesterday I received an error regarding the Wireless Configuration application. I first rebooted to see if it was just a fluke however I received the same error again. Below I describe the error in more detail as well as how to resolve the error by disabling a service that likely is not necessary.
